Everyone deserves a podium spot!

an ambitious entrepreneur and former International CrossFit® and Miss Fitness athlete. She brings her top sport and 20 years of coaching experience to events and coaching programs.

A smile of gratitude appears as I think back to the journey I took and what it brought me. I have gained a Dutch, Benelux, and World title in the Miss Fitness category and was one of the first Dutch CrossFit athletes to compete at the European Regionals (2012).

When I discovered that there were, not only individual but also team competitions for this sport, It was a no-brainer. Unfortunately, the ambition to be part of a team at an International CrossFit competition did not take off at the time.

I still wanted to experience and the energy of a team sport, bring out the best in each other and share the highlights with each other.

But I still managed what I aspired to, a team achievement, not only for myself but accessible to everyone. Organizing team events with more than 60 crew members is another way to experience the performance of a team.

At this moment, I can only be grateful for the fact that, not as an athlete, but as an organizer of 30 team events, I have gained one of the best insights: You don’t perform alone, you win together.

“To be honest: what we have built together as an organization has ultimately given me more satisfaction and pleasure at the end of the journey than being able to receive a prize on my own.”

We organize sports competitions with the main focus of athlete development and bringing people together by challenging them also in their communication & teamwork. The most important part is that everyone has fun in what they are doing – athletes, crewmembers, and spectators alike.

Because we work with 4 divisions, a promotion structure, and various categories, our events are accessible to everybody: young and experienced, amateur and pro.

Not only the “elite athletes” have the opportunity to celebrate their victory during a competition, within our community, everybody deserves a podium spot!
